Earlier this week, American Airlines lost my luggage en route from Los Angeles to Las Vegas. That’s an annoying inevitability when you’re a frequent flyer. What surprised and impressed me was the wash bag they gave me to ensure I could clean up once I hit my hotel.
Virtually any hotel will supply you with soap, and many (though by no means all) will also offer a toothbrush (though not usually toothpaste). But I’ve yet to stay in a hotel that supplies deodorant, so the small stick of that in the bag was an especially welcome addition. After flying all the way from Australia, you really need a shower, and this meant I didn’t have to pay hotel lobby rip-off prices for an emergency deodorant.
I didn’t end up needing the razor, the comb or the hairspray, but it’s a sensible compilation. More airlines should do this. (And yes, my luggage was found — though it took a rather long time to reach the hotel I’m staying at.)
